Refer to Electronic Compass Calibration do you have an owners manual ?
The compass direction will show CAL if it needs to be calibrated. Before calibrating the compass, drive the vehicle to an area that is magnetically clean (free of large metallic objects).
Turn ON the ignition.
Before calibrating the compass, make sure the compass is set to the variance zone in which the vehicle is travelling. See Compass Magnetic Variation Adjustment below.
Press the vehicle information button until the PRESS TO CALIBRATE COMPASS screen is displayed.
Press the set/reset button to start the compass calibration.
The DIC will display CALIBRATING: DRIVE IN CIRCLES. Drive the vehicle in circles at less than 8 km/h (5 mph) to complete the calibration. The DIC will display CALIBRATION COMPLETE when the calibration is complete.
If Your steering wheel keeps turning as in a 360 degree circle that means the steering column has broken or came away from the steering rack they are usually connected by what you call steering ujs something on shaft from column to rack has broken away nothing to do with cv joints or brake fluid if it was belt related that has snapped the steering will still turn it will be just really heavy the pump just helps assist steering my money is on the steering column shaft
Imagine you are looking at a wheel from the top. There is a notch on that wheel. When you turn the wheel, the notch will move along the circular path of that wheel. When the notch moves completely in one whole turn, it has moved 360 degrees. Remember there are 360 degrees in a circle.
When the notch moves only around half of the circle, it has moved only 180 degrees. The notch should be on the opposite side it started on.
One 1/6 of a turn will be equal to 1/6 of 360 or 60 degrees. So the notch will have only moved 60 degrees if you turn the wheel 1/6.
Check both front wheels with the steering wheel centered. One or both may appear to be pointing in the wrong direction slightly. Check both sleeves on the tie rod ends to make sure they are tight and not able to turn. (adjustment sleeves are slightly different than on most cars. One sleeve extends from the drivers side across the front and is about 21/2' long the other is shorter and is about 5" to the passenger side of the pitman arm on the steering box. If either moves, turn it 'till the wheels are fairly straight, tighten the bolts that are on the clamp around the slotted tube, and bring it to an alignment shop and have the toe in re-set. A condition such as this is nothing to mess with. loss of steering is extremely dangerous.
You can problably take the wheel off and turn it around. The shaft and wheel are splined. You will need a special puller. Most auto parts stores have tool loaning programs. Just ask for a steering wheel puller.It is a fairly easy job. About a three out of five.
